Barman (acronym for Backup And Recovery MANager)
is an open source administration tool for disaster recovery of PostgreSQL servers written
in Python for Linux systems. It allows remote backups of multiple Postgres servers in
business critical environments and helps database administrators during the recovery phase.
Barman’s most wanted features include backup catalogues, retention policies,
remote recovery, archiving and compression of WAL files and backups.
Built on top of PostgreSQL’s robust and reliable Point-In-Time-Recovery technology,
Barman allows database administrators to manage the backup and recovery phases
of several PostgreSQL database servers from a centralised location, using an
intuitive command interface.
Barman is distributed under GNU GPL 3.
